How to Choose the Best Skin Serum
Hi there! Tess Walls here, a skin therapist with over three decades of experience helping people embrace and celebrate their unique skin. Today, I want to tackle the age-old question: how do you choose the perfect serum for your skin? It's a critical step in any skincare routine, and I'm here to guide you through the process.
Step 1: Identify Your Top Skin Concerns
Take a moment to look in the mirror and ask yourself, what two things bother me the most about my skin? Is it fine lines around the eyes, sagging skin, dullness, or dryness? Make a note of these concerns, as they'll form the foundation for finding your ideal serum.
Step 2: Dry Skin? Hyaluronic Acid to the Rescue
If dryness is a major concern for you, know that it stems from a lack of water and oil in the skin. To combat this, you need a serum that replenishes and retains moisture. My personal favourite is the Hydraforce Hyaluronic Acid from Germaine de Capuccini's Hydracure line. It acts like a water slide for your skin, boosting hydration levels and creating a perfect canvas for other serums.
Step 3: Tackling Lack of Elasticity
If you're experiencing sagging or loss of firmness, you're not alone! Consider yourself a "melter" and focus on serums that help improve elasticity. Germaine de Capuccini's Timexpert Lift range, particularly the Vector Lift Serum, is a standout choice. Packed with V-Matrix, it works like a net, firming and lifting the skin's deeper layers.
Step 4: Banish Dull Skin with Radiance-Boosting Serums
Is dullness getting you down? To revitalise your skin's radiance, look for serums enriched with vitamins A, B, C, and E, or powerful ingredients like Ferulic Acid. My go-to recommendation is the Timexpert SRNS, a multivitamin serum packed with nourishing nutrients and RC-Advanced, which boosts skin energy for an instant glow.
Step 5: Defeating Wrinkles with Age Cure
Wrinkles bothering you? Get ready to combat them with the Timexpert Rides range's Age Cure serum. This three-part nighttime programme exfoliates with a peel, minimises muscle movement with the No Lines serum, and then densifies the skin to fill in wrinkles. Say hello to firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.

Choosing the right serum starts with understanding your skin's unique needs.
